Run Lisa Run!

Waving hi to my kiddies!
Erin and I. We ran the Baltimore half 1.5 years ago together.
Our cheering section.
I can't believe my race is over! So much time and energy goes into training for a half-marathon (and tons more time for a full marathon - side note: no desire to run one of those : ) and now the race is over and I feel...hmm great in mind, but not so great in body! The aches of a fast long run have taken over my body! It's all worth it though. I proved to myself that I could train throughout the winter months without a treadmill and I beat my previous two half marathon times! The race started at RFK stadium in DC at 7:00 am which made for a short night and an early day. I ran with my friend Erin and it was awesome! It was the start of the Cherry Blossom Festival so the sites were beautiful! Thanks to Cody, Tucker and Aubrey for being there at the end for me. I loved coming around the corner and seeing them cheer me on! Running rocks!
